how did you get the sound to work on slackware? or did it just work on it's own? and are the two kernel versions the same?
I'm having trouble with my Soundcard and linux. Again.
This time I'm not running Slackware, like I was last time (I got the sound to work on that one), now I'm running RedHat v8.0
When I run the Soundcard Utility, it says that "No Sound Card Detected."
I know my computer has a soundcard, Its built into the Motherboard.
I have a K7SOM+ Motherboard if that helps any.
Thanx in advance.
I actually fixed the problem. Red Hat 8 didn't support my MoBo, so I upgraded to RH9. now the problem is getting the system to see my iPod (Which I use as a thumb drive at college) to mount right so I can do word processing.Originally Posted by angelan
If you're wondering why I'm not using WindowsXP like i normally do, its cause my old computer (Which is dead), is still sitting in a military Tech lab where the person working on it left it. He's on parental leave, and can't go back to work. My old computer has my 40gig drive that I normally use for my windows installs, so I'm stuck with a 4 gig drive - which I canabalized out of a Windows98 box - for everything.
Might as well close this topic, I'm putting a Freash install of Win98 when I get home.
And to answer your question, Knoppix is pretty good at setting the system up when it starts up since its a Live CD.
